Ahead of the performance, Sheryl opened up about the importance of singing the Black National Anthem. “I love the fact that the NFL has chosen this year to do its best to work towards diversity and inclusivity, to include the Black National Anthem along with the American National Anthem, along with one of the best songs ever, ‘God Bless America,’” she said to Our Source EXCLUSIVELY days before performing. “It’s just a beautiful time.” the Waterbury, CT native also said. The appearance comes after she nabbed her first-ever EMMY award just months ago in Sept. 2021 in the Best Supporting Actress for Abbott Elementary, making her the first Black woman to do so in 35 years.
